Summary: Bought this laptop for law school, and it works great. Very portable, and the battery seems to last all day. I've had trouble with the trackpad, with the cursor just freezing. Also, I upgraded to windows 10 as soon as I opened the package.
The computer was NOT as good of a value that they sold it as

Summary: There was no windows loaded in the machine. It said to look on the box for the key to open windows. No key existed. Now I have to spend another $125.00 to load windows. The computer was NOT as good of a value that they sold it as.
Summary: I received this laptop on March 25. I only needed it to set up things like WIFI, my scanner, and the occasional Internet research for a project. In other words it hasn't worked hard at all. Last weekend I received a message that an update to windows 10 was avaliable so I installed it.
Summary: Upgrading the memory seems like a must, once you've done that you'll have a great machine for web surfing, playing basic games, watching videos etc.. Often reviews are written from the perspective of people who use the machine to do things the average person will never do.
Summary: FYI -- I have a small computer repair shop and have been in business since 1998 This was just a little experiment.For 230 dollars,I purchased this little laptop to see how it would respond to an upgrade to 8 GB of ram and a solid state hard drive.
